Tax Credit Proposed for OSS Peoples

Carl Malamud sent a memo to US Representatives Rick Boucher (D-Virginia) and Zoe Lofgren (D-California) and Senators Richard Lugar (R-Indiana) and Bob Kerrey (D-Nebraska), along with Veep Al Gore essentially saying that one good way to encourage the growth of the information economy was to offer tax credits. To who? Well, to the people who are writing open source code. To be fair, it cannot be just any written code-if must be used by one thousand people or more. Good idea. Will this make Rob's taxes easier?
